Prompted by this earlier post, VP fan Chris was wondering how the Banfield Freeway (US30) connected with OR99E (Grand and Union Avenue couplet) before I5 was constructed (see his comment here). This 1962 photo shows the Banfield passing under Grand and Union Avenues (refer to the first post), then emptying out on NE 3rd at Davis. Left lane traffic turns on Couch for Union Avenue south and the Burnside Bridge. Right lane traffic passes under the Burnside Bridge, turning left on Ankeny to get to Grand Avenue northbound.
Note how land is being cleared in the upper left for the I5 path through North Portland.
